The Amon Carter Museum of American Art will present its annual music and arts festival, Party on the Porch, celebrating the exhibition "The World Outside: Louise Nevelson at Midcentury." The event will feature art-making activities, extended gallery hours, and live music by Summer Dean to kick off the night, followed by a performance from Alejandro Escovedo.

Throughout the evening, visitors can enjoy art-making activities inspired by "The World Outside," where they can make their own three-dimensional sculptural landscape inspired by the works on view in the exhibition, experiment with building blocks to create Nevelson-themed assemblage, bring a work of art to life at the hands-on sensory stations, and create a Nevelson-inspired notebook.

Visitors can also explore two exhibitions: "The World Outside," featuring over 50 defining artworks by Nevelson that illuminate the artist’s multidimensional mastery of form and dialogue with postwar America; and "Come to Colorado," featuring over 60 photographs, drawn exclusively from the Carter’s Fred and Jo Mazzulla Collection, that document the history of Colorado in the nineteenth century.
